Woody arranged our tours and helped with introducing us to city. Pool was helpful on hot January days when you needing to cool off and relax. Plenty of good local... More

Connie and Graham are wonderful hosts. Charming and funny, not unlike a BBC comedy as a matter of fact. I stayed 3 nights and enjoyed every minute. Graham's brother and his wife were staying there as well; we hit it off and they all invited me to join them for dinner at the local fine dining bistro "Linga Longa" (try... More

If you want a base in Cairns that offers a central location, a quiet suburb and a perfectly relaxed place to stay then this is where you should go. Not far from the airport and a host who's priority is to make your stay special puts this B&B on top of the list. Connie picked us up from the airport,... More

We have stayed for four nights and could not have asked for a better reception. This is a great place with hosts Graham and Connie being very knowledgable in all aspects of the tours that are available both to the reef and the rainforests. Bookings were so easy and with pick ups at the door. Our bedroom was large with... More

The nicest and most helpful folks I have met in Australia (and I have been here for nearly 2 years now) Cairns Bed and Breakfast is the last house on a dead end street in the suburbs which adds to its long list of attractive features. You wake up to tropical birds singing outside your window...not busy traffic of the... More

We came for one night and stayed for 3. A truly superb place to stay with very engaging and helpful hosts who really put themselves out to ensure we had a good time. Connie and Graeme were an encyclopedia of local knowledge and practical advice especially to two newly arrived immigrants from UK. We could not have done better! Thank... More

A group of three adults, we loved this B&B. Besides their familiarity with the area and their willingness help us prearrange and make good choices on tours and sightseeing, Connie and Graham made their B&B an easy place to make our stay restful as well as fun! Breakfasts were made-to-order and delicious, and their consistent advice and guidance took unnecessary... More

My daughter and I had a wonderful 7 day visit at the Cairns B&B. After a hectic week in Brisbane Graham and Connie made us feel right at home with our time in Cairns.
